Here at Grovo, we’re excited to announce the release of The History of the Internet through our Facebook page.

Thanks to Facebook’s Timeline feature, we were able to add milestone stories to our page’s history, documenting over a hundred events that, to us, represent the Internet’s history.

From the first known usage of the @ symbol in 1536, to this year’s infamous Facebook IPO, our Timeline hopes to illuminate the Web’s detailed past and its meteoric rise in just the last century.

Sometimes, to gain perspective on where you are, you must look back on where you’ve been, so is our goal with the History of the Internet. We’ll be adding events in the future, building out our Timeline to incorporate more dates and milestones that have brought us to the Web as we know it today.

If you think we missed anything, we’d love some help! Contact us with any suggestions or feedback, we’d love to hear from you.
